Sandra Bullock Attached To Play Filibustering Texas Pol Wendy Davis In ‘Let Her Speak’
EXCLUSIVE: The hot project du jour is Let Her Speak, a Mario Correa script that just got Sandra Bullock attached, subject to landing a director she likes. Bullock will play Democratic Texas State Sen. Wendy Davis, who on June 25, 2013, hit the national spotlight when, against extraordinary odds, she singlehandedly staged a 13-hour filibuster. Her stamina not only thwarted GOP leaders’ plans to enact one of the country’s most restrictive anti-choice laws, but resulted in the most far-reaching Supreme Court victory for reproductive rights in a generation.
The film is being produced by Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch for Escape Artists, Jonathan Shukat for ShowKat Productions, and Bullock. They will quickly secure a director and lock in the distributor.
Correa is repped at WME, and Heroes and Villains Entertainment. Bullock is repped by CAA.
